may. here the dewpoints they are back up in the 70s in philadelphia. oppressive humidity building in once again today. not so bad up north places like allentown and reading don't get as much as rain as we do to the south. temperatures are tricky. 78 degrees by 7:00 a.m. for the early workout. 86 by 10:00 a.m., noon there's a chance that we zoom up to 93. the reason i'm going for lower temperatures during the afternoon there's a better chance of showers and thunderstorms coming through, once the rain falls it will cool us down. it will be a day we're up in the 90s here and down to the 80s here and spiking back up to the 90s if there's a lull in the rain. i'll track the thunderstorms on future tracker 6 and there's another round coming in tonight and tomorrow and there's a prolonged threat of flooding. there's another reason why
police are delayed going to work. one of reason is the cones set up for the schuylkill expressway and the platt bridge there's only one lane. i-95 you have people merging. they are checking for vehicles over five tons which are not allowed to continue on i-95 northbound through the city, that's the one police checkpoint. no delay just yet. 54 miles per hour. the other one that's causing problems is on i-95 southbound near the vine this this is causing extensive delays, but not just yet. if you're heading out early looking good with no big problems. the accident on keith valley road in horsham has cleared. traffic is moving better right there. in chester county we have construction crews blocking the left lane on the turnpike westbound near malvern. now heading to matt at the dnc. >> reporter: good morning, everyone, laborers are preparing the stage tonight, it comes down

went wild. bernie sanders supporters were not so happy with the running mate tim kaine did his duty as the vice presidential nominee. he specifically mentioned the fiscal crisis in atlantic city as an example of donald trump's failed business ventures. >> they did the work, he had hung the drywall, they poured the concrete, but a year after opening trump filed for bankruptcy, he walked away with millions and they got pennies on the dollar, some of them went out of business, all because they believed donald trump. >> kaine said if you want to know about the character of public life, know about their
passion, hillary clinton's families and children and trump is his himself. joe biden took to the stage saying that he is a threat to the nation. >> how can there be pleasure in saying you're fired? he is trying to tell us he cares about the middle class, give me a break, that's a bunch of mullarky. >> jim gardner had a chance to talk on one on one with the vice president after the speech. we'll have more on jim's exclusive conversation in the next half-hour. breaking overnight, secret service and police arrested seven people when protesters reached a barricade near the wells fargo center. jennette reyes is live in fdr park with the details. >> reporter: good morning, matt, things got out of handle outside the wells fargo center, this morning going into day four of
the dnc you can see security measures still in place. take a live look behind me you have the garbage trucker and another barrier, as well, preventing any vehicles from going in. several masked protesters have been arrested for trying to breach the security. take a look at the video here, bernie sanders supporters were rallying, a woman was burned during a flag burning she was taken to the hospital and expected to recover. in a separate incident the secret service said seven people got through an arturo perimeter fence and entered a secret service secure zone they were detained and arrested and expected to appear before a judge today. it happened on tuesday, you have protesters going into the security zone, as well, they were arrested and appeared before a judge yesterday.
today is the last day of the dnc. the crowds have dwindled as we have gone into the week. that could change because hillary clinton is set to speak today, for the most part, protests have have been peaceful. reporting live at fdr park jennette reyes. >> let's go back to tam with more on the speeches. >> reporter: new this morning, the trump campaign was quick to respond to the scorching statements made by the democrats. trump advisors saying they are dismissing the democrats. they presented the businessman turned politician as the voice of solution in american society which they say is not true. donald trump is expected to
speak in davenport iowa later today. the toughest attack came from michael bloomberg he took his first shot by saying unlike trump he did not start his business with a 1 million-dollar check from his father. it seemed like he was just getting started. >> trump said he wants to run the nation like he is running his business? god help us. i'm a new yorker, and i know a conwhen i see one. as you can imagine, trump issued a counterattack a short time later, but did not address bloomberg's remarks, instead, he reissued a statement accusing bloomberg of launching a campaign against gun rights. tonight will be hillary clinton's night, we invite you to join us for our special extended dnc coverage at
